Wenatchee opens new public market

WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) The city of Wenatchee has a new tourist attraction.

Pybus Public Market opened downtown last month in an old warehouse overlooking the Columbia River. The warehouse was built in 1946 by a blacksmith whose business grew to include metal fabrication, machine work and welding.

Now, a large red sign much like the one at Seattle's Pike Place Market welcomes visitors.

The market houses about 20 year-round restaurants and shops, including fruit stands, meat and seafood shops and specialty stores featuring flavored vinegars and oils, tea, beer, wine, nuts and home decor items. It's also home to the seasonal farmers market.

Pybus Public Market is open seven days a week, 362 days a year.
